Reception: Sponsored by The Clearing House
This opportunity to mix and mingle with the participants, including program speakers and the law students who produced the North Carolina Banking Institute Journal is always a highlight of the Banking Institute.
The Clearing House is the oldest banking association and payments company in the U.S., having been established in 1853. It is owned by the world's largest commercial banks. The Clearing House Payments Company provides payment, clearing, and settlement services to its member banks and other financial institutions, clearing almost $2 trillion daily and representing nearly half of the automated-clearing-house, funds-transfer, and check-image payments made in the United States. The Clearing House Association, LLC is a nonpartisan advocacy organization representing the interests of its owner banks on a variety of important banking issues.
We are grateful to The Clearing House for its generous support of this reception and of our New York Lecture Series.

2014 Banking Institute Annual Dinner**
This is a separately ticketed event, but it is included without additional charge for all speakers, students, those attending as corporate sponsors, or on other special admission rates. Please consider attending to spend more time meeting and talking with colleagues and to hear the after-dinner remarks.
The Second Annual George and Susan Beischer Address
In the Beischer Challenge George and Sue Beischer agreed to match up to $1 million of gifts and pledges to the Center for Banking and Finance. The gift was completed in 2011 and celebrated at the William Horn Battle Society Dinner on April 15, 2011. In honor of this transformative gift to the Center, its board of advisors voted to name the after-dinner address at the annual Banking Institute in honor of the Beischers. We mourn George’s death in September 2011, and are pleased that the Beischer Address will be an annual opportunity to remember George and to thank the Beischers for their generosity.
